Live longer, feel better, & be more productive! OMEGA: The next evolution in standing desk and treadmill desk ergonomic design.
An infinitely-adjustable, ergonomic keyboard tray built right in
Most people are aware that adjustable keyboard trays (AKTs) are supposed to improve ergonomics when using a computer. They do this by tilting the keyboard's front edge up in order to eliminate "wrist extension," among other good things. When seated at a desk, these measures work well. However, standing desk and treadmill desk users soon find that conventional keyboard trays cannot adjust sufficiently to achieve the ideal geometries required when not sitting - they were never designed to. iMovR's pioneering research in this arena has led to to development of the Omega Desk line (patents pending), incorporating an infinitely-adjustable keyboard tray right into the desktop.
The Omega is the first and only adjustable-height desk on the market with optimal ergonomics for all three modalities: sitting, standing and even walking on a treadmill.
Most AKTs cannot achieve more than -15 degrees of keyboard tilt. When standing, without the benefit of chair armrests to support the user's forearms, -15 degrees is not enough to achieve the most "neutral" and therefore ergonomic position. This can lead to a variety of muscle and joint strains, and can result in reduced typing speed, accuracy and endurance. In over two years of extensive user testing iMovR's engineers figured out that steeper keyboard inclines can correct these issues by allowing the user to type at a more neutral angle - putting the least strain on muscles and joints in the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders and neck - while minimizing "computer hunch" and eliminating wrist flexion and extension entirely.
SteadyType™: exclusively from iMovR
Our proprietary SteadyType design allows the keyboard to be set at literally any angle up to -85 degrees (and without losing your keyboard). A tilt angle of -20 degrees or greater is what most users will find the most comfortable for typing while standing. For treadmill desk usage, angles of -25 to -40 degrees achieve the greatest improvements in ergonomics and comfort, as well as maximizing typing speed, accuracy and endurance. A crucial additional benefit for treadmill deskers is eliminating "anchoring stresses" which occur when users press down hard on their palms in order to maintain hand position over the keyboard as they sway with their walking motions and the treadmill belt pulls them backwards. Working at steeper angles allow the hands to relax and merely "hang on" loosely, without needing to apply pressure on the palms to maintain a consistent hand position over the keyboard.
The net result is higher typing speeds and accuracy at faster walking speeds than can be achieved with any other treadmill desk setup.
And we didn't forget about the mouse
High-end keyboard trays often have a separate mouse pad that allows you to raise the height of the mouse relative to the keyboard. This is done in order to keep your upper arm as vertical as possible... reaching out for a mouse or trackball can aggravate joints and muscles in the arm and shoulder. The Omega's keyboard tray has two height settings that position it lower than the desk surface, in order to achieve the same ergonomic goal and keep that upper arm from moving out.
Great ergonomics, but also the best overall stability of any sit-stand desk
We always recommend using a keyboard tray, but the truth is that using a keyboard tray on any 2-leg, adjustable-height desk can lead to significant monitor shaking - especially if that monitor is mounted to a monitor arm like it should be. By incorporating the keyboard tray directly into the desktop the user's typing pressure is applied only inches from the center crossbar of the desk. The difference in desk and monitor stability is amazing. The Omega is by far the most rigid height-adjustable table ever devised, and dramatically more stable than any two-leg desk using a keyboard tray. Watch this demonstration video to see what we mean.
Three models to choose from: EVEREST, OLYMPUS and DENALI
The OLYMPUS, featured here, is based on iMovR's value-leading ThermoDesk UpTown. If you're looking for a manual (crank) desk, please check out the Omega DENALI, which is based on the popular ThermoDesk ELLURE. If you're looking for an entirely made-in-the-USA desk check out the Omega EVEREST, which is based on our top-of-the-line ThermoDesk ELITE.
The Omega OLYMPUS: Quiet, Muscular, Stable
The OLYMPUS is built on iMovR's UpStage-30 electric base, the quietest in the industry, registering under 41 decibels. With a brawny 360 lb. lifting capacity and a transit speed of 1.45 inches per second, the UpStage is one of the strongest bases on the market.
The OLYMPUS is one of the tallest-reaching desks in the industry - with a top-end height of 50" (including desk top) - while being able to descend down to 25" for sitting. Most height-adjustable tables top out at 47" (the ANSI/BIFMA standard most manufacturers shoot for) but the OLYMPUS's extra threeinches of reach will be beneficial to anyone over 6'2", or 5'9" if using a treadmill. Even average height users will appreciate the OLYMPUS's greater leg stability, because its telescoping leg segments have substantially more overlap at maximum extension than desks that top out at lower heights.
State-of-the-Art Digital Controller
An LED readout showing the height of the desk in inches, and three programmable height presets (e.g. set to sitting, standing and walking heights) are the features of the digital controller that you can see. What you can't see are the controller's advanced acceleration and deceleration dampening - to ensure your coffee cup will never slosh while the desk changes height with silky smoothness - or its built-in anti-collision detector.
A Confident Warranty
Like all iMovR work surfaces, the OLYMPUS's Omega desktop is 100% Made-in-America (Michigan, to be precise). The UpStage base is made in the most technology-advanced linear actuator factory in China, renowned for the precision and reliability of its component manufacturing. Our confidence in the reliability and quality of the OLYMPUS is reflected in the robust warranty coverage we offer on it: Lifetime on the frame, and 5 years on the motors and moving parts, tabletop, and electronics.
Thousands of design combinations
The OLYMPUS can be customized with different base and tabletop colors, tabletop shapes and sizes, and numerous add-on options. With all these options you can match your available space and surrounding decor to a T.
For standard rectangular tops come in 42", 47", 59" and 71" wides, and 30" depth - see the standard Olympus Standing Desk for those options.
The corner tops come in five different sizes with 24" side wings, and four more sizes with 30" side wings. See Specs tab for complete dimensional drawings. These extra-thick, 1-1/8" tops feature recessed nuts for installing the base with machine screws instead of wood screws. This means you can take the desk apart and re-assemble it many times without ever degrading the screw holes.
Not Just Black, White and Gray...
Omega desks feature our exclusive 3D lamination for the ultimate in aesthetics, ergonomic comfort and durability. Choose from eleven standard finishes to fit your decor.

Why 3D lamination is superior to standard lamination
Your run-of-the-mill desktop is manufactured using a process called high-pressure lamination (HPL). 3D lamination is an entirely new process that requires a very large machine ($1 million+). It enables us to have our tops custom-made to order and shipped out within one week of ordering. Very few furniture manufacturers have such equipment, and iMovR is the only maker of height-adjustable tables that offers 3D lamination. Because the process is so highly automated we save enough in labor to price our 3D-laminated products where our competitors price their inferior HPL tabletops.
We start with the wood slab, and shape it on CNC routing machines to a precision of 1/5000ths of an inch. This includes putting an "ergo contour" on all four edges. Once formed, we thermofuse Omnova Surf(x) 3D Laminate to the tabletop under high temperature and pressure, making a perfect, hermetically-sealed bond all around. The contoured edges and even the grommet holes show the woodgrain pattern perfectly. The resulting product has the appearance of an extravagantly carved hardwood desk, yet costs the same as far less durable and less elegant HPL product most everyone else uses in our industry. We don't cover our grommet holes with cheap plastic caps because you'll want to show off the real wood appearance of your desk.
The Omnova Surf(x) 3D laminate we use in our products is more durable and resistant to chemicals, scratches and dings than typical HPL. In fact, you'd historically find these laminates working 24/7 in hospitals, where they constantly use harsh chemicals to clean and disinfect their desktop surfaces. That's right, you can spill bleach on your Omega desktop and never see any discoloration.
Most wood tabletops are attached to their bases with wood screws, which can degrade the integrity of the wood after only a few disassemblies and re-assemblies. We install recessed nuts in our Omega tabletops, so they can be attached to their bases using machine screws. No more sawdust, and you'll never have to re-drill new holes no matter how many times you take the desk apart.
Where most other table tops come with short warranties reflecting their minimal qualities, all our tops come with a FIVE YEAR warranty, but they're designed to last a lifetime.
